Updates On 'Escape From New York' Remake
(Horror-Movies/Apr 12/2010) By Meh
From Collider come some updates on the remake of Escape From
New York which has been long gestating. Producer Neil Mortiz tells them that
they have a new script and are now hitting the streets to find a director. Last
year Variety reported that Gerard Butler was going to star but he was later
removed from the project.
Neil Moritz says they have a few people in mind to play Snake Plisken but that
they hope Gerard Butler will read the new script and consider the role. He also
says they are aiming for an R rating for the film.
The escape movies are some of my favorite b-movie action films and although
admittedly not horror their apocalyptic themes are why I mention them here.
